UK Car of the Year 2022

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 was crowned best car overall by a panel of 29 expert judges from a diverse array of titles covering the British automotive industry.

John Challen, Editor and Managing Director of the UK Car of the Year Awards, said: “The Hyundai IONIQ 5 feels like the future of motoring, only it’s here today. Its design, performance and practicality make it a fantastic proposition for those looking for an EV. It’s a very worthy winner of the title UK Car of the Year 2022.”

The IONIQ 5 has really captured the attention of UK consumers, offering a stylish, premium full EV experience that appeals to almost every type of new car buyer. Its innovative layout means it is spacious enough for large families, its efficient zero emissions powertrain is perfect for company car buyers, and its luxurious eco-friendly interior elevates Hyundai into a genuine premium product.

The top honour came after the IONIQ 5 was also awarded the Best Family Car category, where it was praised for making “going electric easy” and being “innovative, desirable, practical, and brilliantly designed to make full use of its electric-only platform.”

The sleekly styled Hyundai IONIQ 5 pays homage to the marque’s design heritage while focusing on delivering the future of electric mobility to customers today. Thanks to Hyundai’s industry-disrupting new Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), the IONIQ 5 provides faster charging times, increased driving range, enhanced handling, and superior interior space.

The modular, flat-floor E-GMP has also enabled Hyundai’s designers to revolutionise the car interior. The IONIQ 5 redefines what is possible with a completely new in-car experience and living space, offering sustainable materials, fully flexible seating, and numerous custom options.
